Stickybot robotic lizard climbs on glass
Some of you might have seen this amazing robot on Good Morning America a few days ago. The Stickybot robotic lizard is modeled after the gecko, and is capable of climbing up glass surfaces with ease at a meter per second. The Pentagon is super interested. It could be a great robotic spy, after all. I guess it could also be used to watch people getting their freak on too.

This robot is such an excellent climber thanks to nano-scale hairs on it’s toes. In the future, they can no doubt make it resemble a gecko more closely, but he’s a pretty cute critter as he is. In time, they would make him move more naturally as well, though he does an impressive job already. You just have to keep in mind that it’s all fun and games until you see swarms of these things crawling all over Skyscrapers. And so it begins…

The Drop lamp from Andromeda

The Drop lamp from Andromeda
This lamp from Andromeda has an awesome look. Andromeda is the company name, but this one could have just as easily come from the Andromeda galaxy. The Drop Lamp combines Murano glass mastery and engineering in a suspended lamp that looks like a droplet of water frozen in space. It has an organic, futuristic look that is simple and elegant.

The natural characteristics of Murano glass means no two lamps are identical. They are all unique works of art. Well, as they point out, if you drop them the result is always the same, a million shards of broken glass and a huge chunk of money out of your pocket to replace it. These have a really cool design and they actually do look like they are about to drop, which might make you a bit nervous.
